Gaga for Romwe: Part I
I've somewhat been recently introduced to the amazingness that is Romwe. The website is sort of like a Chicwish meets Forever 21 with a little bit of ModCloth thrown into it here and there. After eyeing several amazing novelty print skirts (my favorite) I fell in love with this one and another one I'll be featuring in a week or two. What I love about this skirt is a few things: 1) green and purple are basically my favorite colors AND my favorite color scheme. So yay! But 2) something about this print screams rock and roll. Specifically I keep hearing the song "Bonnie and Clyde" by Serge Gainsbourg & Brigitte Bardot (the song where Chuck and Blair are escaping Bart's death scene on the finale of Gossip Girl, for if you don't click the link). Though I can't necessarily say why I think of that song as no matter how many times I look at this print I can't 100% figure out what's happening! But regardless, I am totally in love with this skirt!
Oh my goodness, the prints! So many fun prints are happening on Romwe! For a vintage/retro lover, especially those of us who love fun colors and crazy novelty prints, this clothing retailer is a dream! And, it's a LOT less expensive than some of it's competitors!
The good with "the bad" is that most clothing items posted on the website are photographed from multiple different angles and the site has a great zoom function. Therefore you can see that not all pieces of clothing are created equal. A lot of skirts seem to have awkward fits/cuts and a lot of skirts have elastic in the really bulky and bunchy way. While that isn't ideal, at least the zoom and photography is well done enough so you can investigate any piece to your heart's desire and decide if the quality is up your alley. I did that with this skirt and the other one I got and I have zero regrets with it as both skirts are exactly what I was expecting.
On the other skirt that I purchased, the zipper is a little tough though the fit is perfect. Like, burns your fingers tough to zip it up. BUT I did get it to work! That said, this skirt is perfect so being that it's 50/50 so far I'm not sure if it's a norm or not. I'm just pointing it out because it was a little bit disappointing!
